Feral Interactive today has released Tropico™ 3: Gold Edition
for the Mac. It is now available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide including http://www.feralinteractive.com
and the Mac App Store. The game is also available for download and review by approved media.
Developed by Haemimont Games and published by Kalypso Media for Windows, Tropico 3: Gold Edition
is a re-imagining of the classic construction and management simulation Tropico.
Tropico 3: Gold Edition
is a combination of strategic city-builder and humorous political simulator that invites players to reign as El Presidente, dictator of the resource-rich Caribbean nation of Tropico. To govern is to choose, and as players build their island’s infrastructure, manage the economy and keep competing factions on side, they will have plenty of opportunity to find out whether they prefer to rule with a velvet glove or an iron fist.
To maintain their grip on power, players will need to create a cult of personality around El Presidente, composing his silver-tongued speeches, manipulating the media and building monuments in his honor. El Presidente’s character will determine the way he is regarded by the people, and whether he is inclined to run Tropico as a vacation paradise, a police state, an industrial metropolis, or all three!
Each of the 15 missions in Tropico 3: Gold Edition’s
campaign mode challenges players to develop a single island, each with its own victory conditions, within a set time frame. Tropico 3: Gold Edition
includes the Absolute Power expansion
pack, which contains a completely new 10-mission campaign, additional islands and the ability to issue “Megalomania” edicts such as “Print Money”.
Tropico 3 Gold
for the Mac will retail in North America for US $34.99, £24.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €29.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe. A mini-site dedicated to the game is available now at http://www.feralinteractive.com/tropico3.
